Event information

WaterAid Canada has teamed up with Merit Travel Group to provide the ultimate challenge. Take on the highest freestanding mountain in the world and help bring clean water to everyone, everywhere by 2030.

Ever stood on the top floor of a skyscraper and thought, "Bah, this ain't so tall"? Then you might just be Kilimanjaro material.

Join us as we walk in the footsteps of famed explorers and moutaineers on our way to the top of Africa's tallest peak towering at 5,895 metres above sea level. Hike through lush rainforests and alpine deserts. Cross glaciers by day and sleep closer to the stars than you ever dreamed possible at night. 

Following a successful summit, Kilimajaro Climb for Life team members have the option to visit WaterAid project sites in Tanzania to see how their fundraising is changing lives.

*Taxes included. Based on double occupancy. 
**To be raised prior to departure.
